Meditation for Today

Meditation for today:"Come away with me for a while. The world, the job, the responsibilities, with all the non-stop demands, can be put on hold for a brief moment. Most people put "Me time" on hold, rationalizing that someday they will find time to focus on themselves. But the longer people push quiet time into the background of their lives, the harder it is for them to find time for it. We live among people who glorify "busyness." They have made time a tyrant that controls their lives. They have bought into the illusion that MORE is always BETTER; more meetings, more programs, more activity. God has called us to follow on a solitary path, making quiet time alone a high priority and a deep joy. It is a pathway largely unappreciated and often even despised. However, when we take time away for meditation, we are often able to bless others more by the peace that we are able to carry out our day with."

Workshop on Saturday, January 14, 2012

Our first Tranquility Yoga workshop focuses on the hands, wrists, arms, elbows, shoulders, neck, and upper back. (This was one of my New Year's resolutions - getting up my courage to teach about all I study about every day.) I believe that we were originally designed for more of a movement based lifestyle anatomically; however, these days in our fast moving, modern society, we tend to sit or stand in a rounded forward position with our upper back and shoulders. Due to this compromised position with our body, we put way too much pressure on our hands and wrists and far less on our strong arms, shoulders, and upper back with good posture. Time pressure and work related stress create even more tension in our shoulders and neck. The most frequent complaint that I hear in beginner's yoga is concerning the hands and wrists. The deep flexion of the hand in downward facing dog is tough for people who are only used to being on a computer or at a steering wheel or using dental hyge…

Three Things to Consider

I am so excited about our new schedule for the winter and spring of 2012. Even with a rising economy, our prices remain the same; however, **personal training** will just be a pay as you go type of plan (no more personal training package plans). We remain the cheapest yoga classes in Tulsa County to my knowledge. Each class we endeavor to burn a minimum of 300 calories through movement and breath combinations.

Prices for our yoga classes have remained the same for three years. No reservation needed for the regular 12 weekly class offerings.
$10 drop-in
$5.62 per class with an 8 class package
$5.50 per class with a 20 class package
$5.00 per class with a monthly unlimited which auto renews (classes become cheaper the more often you come to the 12 offerings a week)
$4.50 per class with 6 months unlimited (classes become cheaper the more often you come to the 12 offerings a week)
$4.00 per class with 12 month unlimited (classes become cheaper the more often you come to the 12 offerings a we…
